The Tyburn Jig

 

The bastards came in hundreds - they flocked from all around,

They piled into those old crossroads where the Tyburn gallows stand,

They stood and watched with glee as i performed the Tyburn jig,

They gathered and they gave applause as i gargled and i kicked.

Rattling and twitching i twisted on the rope,

Feeling every inch that pinched from deaths grip on my throat
